To love is a choice that is made consciously. To love yourself is no different: we may spend days without giving ourselves some “me time” or not paying attention to what our bodies are telling us. It is important to remember that Self-Love and Self-Care are pillars that hold the person we are. To be able to love others, we must first be recharged and emotionally balanced and this can only be achieved by mindfully taking care of yourself.

We put together a selection of 7 articles to have YOU thinking about YOURSELF. Don’t forget: health is a relationship between you and your body and eating well is a form of self-respect, so grab your favorite Ekoa fruit Bar and enjoy the reading!
